ADV - NPLD - Oronoco Prairie SNA
Oronoco, MN 55960
Volunteers are invited to the fourth annual family-friendly seed collection from Oronoco's very rare SE Minnesota Remnant Prairie. This seed collection will be held on National Public Lands Day, September 30th between 9 AM and 4 PM. Collected seeds from dozens of native species are distributed to urban prairie and savanna restoration projects as well as to Minnesota's DNR sites per the DNR-FOIH agreement (DNR 2019 permit available upon request). Benefits to the environment include ensuring local genetic diversity and providing very local genetic diversity in our newly restored urban parks. Volunteers are encouraged to choose a 90 minute period between 9 AM and 4 PM. Recommended ages are 5 to 95 years for moderate activity on a beautiful, mostly flat prairie. Volunteers are asked to come for at least 90 minutes.
Meeting from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. on:
- Saturday, September 28, 2019
